So, I've never read any solo She-Hulk stories (not even the well praised Byrne run.) I've been reading Slott's Spider-Man and thought I would try this collection.

It's closer to 2.5 stars. I didn't find it quite as entertaining as his Spider-Man. It has some wackiness to it, which I believe is a hallmark of the character and there's some fairly inventive stories involving the legal system that I enjoyed. I'm not sure if it is just that I don't really identify with Jennifer Walters (who is just as

The first 12 issues are the strongest part of this collection. The rest is good but somewhat disjointed. I enjoy a good one-shot, but some connection to the rest of the book, please. Juan Bobillo's art is adorable; I love how he draws both Jen and She-Hulk.

I was lying in bed yesterday morning, waiting for my alarm to go off and I realized that I couldn’t recall the last time I’d been sick. I don’t mean deathly ill or anything either. I mean, I can’t recall the last time I had a stuffy nose, a cough, or even a headache.

I wondered, briefly, if I’d finally figured out a method to cheating disease altogether. You know, my diet of banana pudding, peanut butter Cap’n Crunch, hamburgers, and beer had overwhelmed any would be pathogen before it could do

I really enjoyed this volume. Dan Slott has to be one of the best comics writers currently active and his run on this title is a great mix of humor, imaginative situations, and pathos all in one. He does a great job of illustrating both sides of Jennifer Walters' character--the fairly buttoned-down lawyer and the more chaotic She-Hulk within. Lots of great stories revolving around a law firm with a branch that specializes in the superheroic and the supervillainous. The artwork varies wildly, but ...more

This was a refreshing, light-hearted change of pace in my recent comics reading, away from darker stuff like Hellblazer, the Miller and Bendis Daredevil runs, and the like. This first volume of Dan Slott's Shulkie run is breezy, funny, and not afraid to make fun of itself and comics in general. The whole idea of a law firm for super-powered clients is great, especially the bit about researching the long-boxes for case info. There is even a time travel angle I actually enjoyed. Also the Two-Gun ...more

Light hearted and accessible. And beautiful drawn. And hilarious. Like Palmiotti and Conners "power girl" but with more heart, somehow. It's funny and clever, avoiding over sexualizing Jen Walters in favor of deft characterization and perfect balance of fighting, court room drama and clever self-referential in-jokes. This is amazing. One of the best series I've read. Just no weak issues. And the "100" issue is SO damn good. Can't wait to read volume 2.

When her hard-partying and carefree nature causes her to be fired from her job and ousted from the Avengers Mansion, attorney Jennifer Walters, aka the She-Hulk, begins a new direction in her life when she begins working for the law offices of Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg, and Holliway. Jen soon finds that the place is not the typical law firm, but one that caters to certain clients who are right up her alley.

Dan Slott embarks on his memorable SHE-HULK run by taking a lighter, affectionately humo

My first time reading a She-Hulk title, and it was not what I expected. That's a good thing. I kept passing on She-Hulk because I thought she was just a female version of Hulk. My mistake. Other than the green skin, She-Hulk doesn't remind me of her male counterpart at all.

This book is smart, fun, light, and pretty straightforward. There's no emotional roller coaster or a big mystery that keeps you in suspense. It's simple and entertaining, and that works well. We follow Jennifer Walters/She-Hul

As point of reference I also got the Waid Daredevil vol. 2 HC at the same time. Started reading that first and was so disappointed that I put it down and read this instead which was an MUCH more enjoyable reading experience. I love Dan Slott's writing. I thank the comic Universe that Slott is allowed to write comics. Here's the thing, Waid's run on Daredevil started off good - it was FUN. Something comics forget to be. But the last HC was DEPRESSING (and also had a horribly stupid plot twist on ...more

I read the first tp of Slott's run on She Hulk a while ago, but since I am enjoying Charles Soule's current run on the character, I thought it would be a good idea to take a look back and also read all the other issues I've missed. I really find it interesting how Slott manages to balance the Jen side with the She-Hulk side of the character. It is interesting to see Walters at her most vulnerable, her instincts to fight against the perceived weakness of when she is "ordinary." There is some ...more

Single Green Female (1-6). A very innovative take on the She-Hulk, with its focus on superheroic law rather than superheroic punching. There's also a lot of great characterization, particularly the difference between Jen and She-Hulk. Finally, Slott does an excellent job of giving a lot of great attention to Marvel continuity. Overall. a winner. [7/10]

Superhuman Law (7-12). The two-parter that heads this volume off, with its big fight against Champion, is a little weak, but after that the volume

You know you're in for a treat with a Dan Slott comic book. She-Hulk, also known as Jennifer Walters, has lost her job, been dumped by her underwear model boyfriend for being too shallow, and has been kicked out of the Avengers Mansion. When party-boy himself, Tony Stark, has a problem with your drinking and shindigs, you know you've gone too far.

The first volume sees She-Hulk shrink back down to Jennifer Walters as she takes a job at a new firm. She hates it. She is not comfortable in her own

I've rarely encountered She-Hulk in my travels through the Marvel universe but after the recent team up I read in Avenging Spider-Man I thought I'd check her out to see if the characterisation was accurate. It wasn't, much to my delight. Even more to my delight was finding out this fan favourite run was written by Dan Slott, my current Spider-Man hero.

These are some great comics, full of humour, smart thinking, interesting angles on the potential legal ramifications of a life with superheroes an

This whole run is turning out to be a fantastic collection of short character-driven stories. We get to see why Jennifer Walters prefers being She-Hulk most of the time, how she is gradually empowered in her human form, and some normal coping mechanisms she turns to in the face of shame and confusion (e.g. promiscuous sex and alcoholism/constant partying, even though she can't actually get drunk as She-Hulk).

There are frequent meta-references and 4th Wall breakings, which I found delightful. The

Rather surprisingly, I didn't enjoy this quite as much as I had expected. I like She-Hulk as a character, and I like Dan Slott as a writer, but something just didn't click for me. First of all, this run takes place right during the events of Avengers Disassembled, which was 10 years ago now. Boy the Marvel Universe sure has changed a lot in that time, and I think for the better. Back then, they were handing out super powers like candy. You couldn't walk down the street without seeing 7 or 8 ...more

That was a lot of She-Hulk. I've never read She-Hulk before. She was a character that I thought was interesting, but I never had the extra funds to buy. Plus the library never had it in their collection. After reading this collection I can't believe it took me this long to find it! Dan Slott is one of my favorite writers. I enjoy the majority of the comics he writes. She-Hulk is no different. It's great comic about She-Hulk trying to be her regular self Jen Walker and how often she needs to be ...more

Besides Storm, She-Hulk is becoming my other top Marvel lady. I know know why, but there's something about her. This volume is great if you like She-Hulk a lot. It's non-stop fun. Some action here and there, but hardly any "drama" which I wouldn't want with She-Hulk. This reminded my Harvey Birdman (if anyone knows that cartoon you are awesome), except it's about various Marvel heroes and court cases. My favorite case in this had to be the one about ghosts because it was a parody of how heroes ...more

This was very up and down. Vacillating between a 2 and a 3. Major marks off for the tonal shifting, particularly as She-Hulk vol 4 (?) #4 goes. Got a little too derailed and dependent on "characterization" from Disassembled, and played up the sexy more than I'd like.

On the plus side, though, when it was funny it was FUNNY. Meta jokes are almost always my favorite and they had continuity nerds using comic books to solve legal questions, and a giant gun called the RetCan. So I was pretty happy the

I adore She-Hulk. She is one of my all time favorite characters, and Dan Slott's run is an iconic a wonderfully snarky part of Shulkie's history. Everything is very self aware and fun, full of life and wordy legal action. Every case is a genius play on some superhero trope, and every adventure is a light hearted romp through the Marvel U. At times the content can feel a bit dated, and none of the artists here really pop with anything truly ground breaking, but Dan Slott's clever writing really ...more

Super terrific. Highly recommended. Funny and fun.

Once I forgave the author for taking liberties with the law (because comicbooks' depiction of, e.g., medicine and journalism is so accurate, right?) practically everything in here was excellent.

Some of the "twists" are a little obvious.

Also, there was a conscious choice to make Jennifer Walters and She-Hulk's face really round. I mean really round. It's "off-model" from previous iterations and I wonder how long that was thought out.

Matt...this volume shows that you might be right about Dan Slott being a good writer.

It started in a way that lead to a prediction that this is going to be horrible!

But within 15 pages it became clear where the story was going and that it was fun, imaginative and smart.

The first volume collected in here is stronger than the second. And there are some things that hold the overall volume down for me. But really very nicely done Mr. Slott.

I was pretty indifferent to Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk before reading this volume, but it has made a fan out of me! I love the dichotomy between her two persona's and how they play off of each other. The genre aware humor was amazing, and it's nice to see that in a female superhero!

A good read for Avengers fans, especially those that love some of the more obscure history. Actually, it goes beyond the Avengers lore into the larger Marvel universe. so a must read for Marvel fans?

I really enjoyed how She - hulk was written. Unlike many female characters she was written in a well rounded way. Slott clearly liked this character and had fun writing her. I absolutely loved the tension between She-Hulk as a lawyer, being a super hero, and her identity as Jennifer. This was a great read and reminded me of what makes comic books such fun!

I really liked this collection, though I wasn't always fond of some of the covers or the drawing style for the later issues. I do want more She-Hulk, though. Her character is interesting and I really like the way she tries to balance between the two sides of herself.

Fun from start to finish. Easily understood without boundless back knowledge of the marvel universe. Definitely one of my new favorite comics. I'm always looking for more good, and especially female centric comics with characters like the funny, unstoppable She-hulk.

The art was excellent. A legal drama unfolding in the superhero realm was also great. Ultimately though, I think I've just gotten a bit old for Marvel, it doesn't grip me like it used to.
